A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel CapabilitiesSBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT033
Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT037
In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Nastec, Inc. Topic: N10AT037
A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC. Topic: N10AT025
Electromagnetic launchers or rail guns are a key component of the Navy’s all-electric ship of the future, but they lack the durability required for repeated firings. TDA Research and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) are developing a tough, durable and conductive refractory metal coating that will protect the copper alloy conductors (rails) from the extreme heat and wear conditions inside the ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION Topic: N10AT028
While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: N10AT040
We will demonstrate the feasibility of detecting tactically meaningful complex events in sensor input streams using an efficient pattern matching technology embodied in the Soar cognitive architecture. Our focus in Phase I will be on video streams, such as those that might be produced by unattended ground sensors or unmanned aerial systems. To reduce risk, we propose devoting a portion of our effo ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: UES INC Topic: N10AT028
Thermo-mechanical processes of turbine disks have been progressively improved to meet microstructural requirements tailored for advanced, sustainable high temperature performances. However, the chemistry of typical Ni-base turbine disk alloys is very complex, and yields a variety of phases and microstructural anomalies under different thermo-mechanical heat treatments. These microstructural hetero ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures Subjected to Impulsive Dynamic LoadingSBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc. Topic: N10AT041
Aluminum as a structural material for naval applications has a number of advantages over steel, owing mainly to significant weight reductions which translate to higher speed and range attainable by aluminum vessels. A comprehensive study of research needs for aluminum structures conducted under the ONR program identified the key research areas, which included material behavior and fracture evaluat ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: TTC TECHNOLOGIES, INC. Topic: AF09BT10
A computational and experimental research program is proposed to develop and validate a high-fidelity 3D non-equilibrium magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) plasma compressible flow code for advanced aerospace applications. The code will incorporate a physics-based kinetic model of air plasma with non-equilibrium conductivity sustained by an externally applied electric field. The model will include electron ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: N09T028
The US Navy is undertaking a Total Force Transformation to develop a more agile, deployable, and capable force to meet the challenges of 21st century conflicts. The adaptive expertise required by the Total Force demands innovative and evidence-based approaches to instruction, training, and assessment that enable the development of both routine and adaptive skills. Given the costs of developing tra ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
